Kentucky Constitution, section 12: No person, for an indictable offense, shall be proceeded against criminally by information, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service, in time of war or public danger, or by leave of court for oppression or misdemeanor in office.
Information is what is given by a C.I., but we don't know if this person was wearing a wire or if it was a controlled by, or if it was even initiated by the police or the informant. But being it may be by "information" from a CI and possibly not witnessed by a cop, is there special rules for this regarding a C.I.? are they excluded, even thought it is NOT stated so in the Constitution? (he was indicted by a grand jury, but never had a trial)
